Green cleavin′ of lignin: A green heterogeneous palladium-catalyzed C[BOND]O bond cleavage of 2-aryloxy-1-arylethanols using formic acid as the reducing agent in air was developed. The cleaved products were isolated in 92–98 % yield, and by slightly varying the reaction conditions, a ketone, an alcohol, or an alkane can be generated in near quantitative yield.
